Jayson Werth to serve five days in jail for reckless driving

48 Comments

Back in early July Nationals outfielder Jayson Werth was charged with reckless driving for going 105 mph in a 55-mph zone. In early December he was sentenced to 10 days in jail. There was some appealing and things, but today Werth went into court and pleaded guilty to the charge. He will spend five days in jail over it.

My guess is that Werth can’t pick which days he spends in jail, but if I were him I’d totally try to make it for the middle of spring training when all the veterans start to get tired of the grind. I mean, how much worse would a Fairfax, County jail cell be than Viera, Florida?
